From the Principal

I am honored to be your child's first Principal as they start their "Journey in Education" here at D.A. Quarles Early Childhood Center. Every child is unique in their early development as they learn not only academic skills but social and emotional skills as well. Please work with us to assist your child in developing these skills as Home and School continually work together.
